4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at International Beer Garten (Lutz, FL). Pours a near black color with touches of dark reddish brown along the edges. Thick tan head that lingers nicely with excellent lacing along the glass. Rich aroma of roasted malt and dark bittersweet chocolate with hints of pipe tobacco and molasses. Very smooth and easy to drink. Quite enjoyable.

Pours deep brown/black with nice roasted nut notes that flow into a dry but yet refreshing finish. Deep notes of light cocoa and nuts prevail.

Draft at Redlight Redlight. For a style I’m not usually a fan of, this is surprisingly drinkable. The signature toasted malt flavors from Cigar City are in there, which makes it a joy. Dry and roasty, without being chalky. Great flavors all-around and much better than most of this style.

32oz growler shared by ibrew2or3, thanks Dave! Blackish brown that let’s some light through, loose khaki head. Nice balanced nose, coffee, licorice, cocoa powder, with some light vanilla and nut. Body is light with light but good feeling carbonation. Nice coffee bitterness, light cocoa and licorice in the flavor also. Nice stuff, thanks again Dave.

Pint at the brewery. Nitro. Pours a deep dark brown, almost black. Aroma is deep roasted malts, with little to no sweetness. Flavor is the same. Deep and dry, malty with a very faint caramel. Really nice flavor for a dry stout.

On tap at Capones. A gift sample from Matt Capone himself. Pours a dark brown color with an off white foam head. Has that sweet stout taste with a light mouthfeel to keep it refreshing. Notes of coffee and chocolate through the finish. Cigar City can’t go wrong IMO. Much obliged Matt.

Pours black with a small off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Flavors of coffee, chocolate and roasted nuts. Kind of a slick mouthfeel with a rich toasted finish. An excellent Dry Stout.
